    Awesome the bass is highly underrated in music these days most people just consider it a useless instrument :(
    It's really not underrated. It's just undervalued by 'radio rock' bands and that's where that ends.

    Mainstream Music has always generally been lame, so I don't get the whole uproar about today's radio.

    i disagree.
    i really enjoy a pretty decent percentage of the big hits from previous decades (i guess it all fell apart for me in '95 or so).

    Well, I think I'm just at bias, I mean I adore a lot of the 80s/90s radio rock but 70s is kind of meh for me. 60s is good but passable, etc.

    I like the bassline to Wont Get Fooled Again amazing fun on RB have not bought a real Bass yet so can't say anything until I do
    I have given that bass line a try, lazyness gets to me, so I haven't finished learning it yet. It is a fun bass line based off what I can play off it.

    CrimsonSaint: :( Dang it, I can't compete with that.

    Especially when there are a lot of modern bands that are practically ripping off of "classic" bands.

    I'm a mainstream-*** so I like a lot of modern music. Well, sort of. Give me about 3-6 months without listening to radio, and I can listen to the radio whenever I'm in the car (on average 45-60 minutes a day). And I can get really pissed off in about 3 weeks and start listening to a CD or my girlfriend's iPod again XD

    And in random news, we have this thing at work that shows us how many calls are on hold/agents available (call centers ftl!) and it's playing Cats in the Cradle, which is always win.

    EDIT: I too hate the ALL MODERN MUSIC SUCKS attitude, and that was before you helped me to discover more than just like, 4 bands people don'tk now, gowie XD

    Let's not forget the delicious irony when one of those "modern" bands accuses another of being a carbon copy.

    a quick chart for my tastes...

    mainstream music: 80's>60's>70's>90's>00's

    non-mainstream music: 00's>80's>90's>70's>60's'

    This I actually agree with, except I would switch 80's and 90's for non-mainstream music.

    Let me tell you something. I can't either. But the best way to get better is to fail really hard at really hard songs. For me, at least, things just automatically fall into place and all of sudden I'll pull off the insane 16th note run on Ktulu and be like HOLY **** YES!!!!

    Probably should starting doing that with Xanadu full time now. Testing this week kinda impedes on the process by I will get on it.

    Fender Squire Jazz with the action lowered and Ernie Ball strings.

    Kill that bass. Burn it.

    Okay, don't be that drastic, but upgrade ASAP. My personal recommendation (especially if you like the thin J neck) would be:
    http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ibanez-SR700-Bass-Guitar-104813241-i1392346.gc
    Or another SR series from Ibanez. Those damn Koreans sure can make basses...

    I do like my bass but sometimes it feels like it's impending my progress as a bassist. My next bass is going to be a fretless for practice. This one looks rather nice for the price.

    I'm going to have to be honest here... avoid any bass that cheap. Unfortunately, you pretty much get what you pay for with these instruments, and $300 is about the base for when the instrument starts being of solid quality.

    That is true, lately I've been thinking maybe of trying more of a upgrade than another bass. The fleabasses are intriguing, I like to hear one in action. I also like the color of schemes for those basses. http://www.fleabass.com/ I'll probably be doing a lot of testing before I make a purchase.

    Just to vent here also, I'm very ticked that Fender raised the price of their basses. Especially on the Geddy Lee model... http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-Geddy-Lee-Jazz-Bass-?sku=517881&src=3WFRWXX&ZYXSEM=0&CAWELAID=26044021
    $800 use be a goal I think I can do, $1200 is ridiculous in my mind. I love playing that bass too. :(

    Having experience with the Geddy J, I can tell you that that would be a brilliant use of $800. It's so buttery-smooth... it's wonderful. I wouldn't buy it, however, because try as I might, I can't get it to sound really fat. But it's so easy to play and it's tone is so perfect (too perfect, IMHO), that most non-metal bassists would be crazy to pass it up.

    If it was still $800 dude, I would be all over it. I played it before too, I could play more precise and have a better tone than I ever did on the bass I have now. However, now it's over $1200, that ticks me off. :mad:
